As a GPU noob, but someone who's fascinated by this sort of market effect, can anyone suggest a search term (GPU model number) that I could throw into camelcamelcamel or a similar price-tracking search engine?

I'd like to produce a graph to hold against the Eth price graph and see the trends alongside each other, which I think is the point the author was trying to make but didn't produce the data to show it.

You can just go to the manufacturers website and find any model number you want and then plug that into your search.

Depends what you consider "normal"...
I think prices will drop alot... The used market will be so flooded for a while, I think ppl will tend for used 2x RX 480/580 for less than 300$ for a while...
This will be a great time for budget pcs... To bad Intel is trying to remove the g4560 from the market...
Still, i guess R3 1200/1300/i5 7400 with a rx480/580, would be a great combo for a "budget" pc...

Just search for RX 480 - RX 580, those were the ones who sell the most in this bubble.

That won't work.
Ethereum was designed to be mined via what a typical consumer GPU could do at the time. To make it accessible.
And the GPUs have only gained more performance in those areas since then.

A new currency, or a fork of one could easily target any computation as required, such as the CPU.
As we saw, it was purely market forces that drove GPU prices back down.
Not the designs of the cards in any way, which are still going to be "just better" at what they do now.
